SETPOINT® CMS is a comprehensive online condition monitoring software solution for critical machinery. It is designed for use in the hydrocarbon processing, petrochemical and power generation as well as other industries. SETPOINT® provides powerful visualization tools for analysis and machinery diagnostics of rotating and reciprocating machinery. The software connects directly to the VC-8000 machinery protection system for data acquisition. There is no need for additional hardware. For data visualization and distribution, data are seamlessly transmitted to the OSIsoft® PI System® software widely in use in the aforementioned industries.

One of the important hallmarks of diagnostics is that specific machine faults can be identified in a spectrum by specific frequency components. A spectral band is the vibration content of a range of the important frequencies converted into a single scalar overall value (in RMS) so it can be trended. A change in amplitude of these spectral bands over time is typically a good indicator of a developing specific machine fault and its severity. An example is shown in Figure 2. The spectral bands can be applied independent from the VC-8000 hardware but require connection to an OSIsoft® PI server™.

An alarm is seen on the non-driven end of the pump in Figure 1. To find out more about what is causing the alarm, click on the SETPOINT® CMS icon below the pump.
You will then be linked to the relevant set of trend plots that are associated with the alarm situation. These plots can be saved. This allows you to save both the set of plots you need plus the corresponding timeline (the last 24 h) for diagnostics. As every link to the CMS has a URL, you can access this information from any web browser. Further diagnostic information can be found by clicking on the SETPOINT® CMS icons
The VC-8000 rack is an API 670-compliant machinery protection system that uses two basic module types to continuously monitor machinery data: Universal Monitoring Modules (UMMs) and Temperature Monitoring Modules (TMMs). The fundamental task for these modules is to continuously monitor the signals from connected sensors, condition the signals into multiple measurement parameters for each sensor, and compare these measurements against alarm setpoints.
The real-time data collected by these modules are streamed down the rack’s backplane to the System Access Module (SAM) where the digitized, encoded data is available at the CMS port via a Gigabit Ethernet port. The protocol used for this interface is open. An engineered interface exists allowing it to directly communicate with OSISoft® PI System® software. Communication with other systems is also available by anyone wishing to write an interface supporting our protocol.
The VC-8000 rack communicates directly with server software running on a host computer. This computer is normally a server-grade rack-mount machine running Microsoft Windows, PI Server® software, PI AF Server software, and Microsoft SQL Server software. These software packages work in concert to collect and historize the real-time data supplied by the VC-8000 rack. The data is then available to other PI Server® and clients throughout the organization using local and wide area networks. Remote access is also available using the internet and standard, secure VPN (Virtual Private Networking) technology.
The client software provides the data visualization tools needed to view historized and real-time vibration and process data in the OSIsoft® PI Sever® . Two tightly integrated client software packages are used in tandem to view data: An OSIsoft® visualization client (PI Vision™ or PI ProcessBook® ) and SETPOINT® CMS.
The OSIsoft® visualization client allows you to navigate to points of interest using highly intuitive, highly customized plant overview and machine train mimic diagrams. Once one or more points of interest have been selected in the OSIsoft® visualization client, you can view trends, statuses, current values, and other data, just as from any other point in a PI Server® process historian implementation. From there, you can drill down even deeper into the data than standard OSIsoft® visualization tools allow by means of our SETPOINT® CMS Display client. It is used specifically for viewing vibration waveforms via plot types that are not available in OSIsoft® visualization tools.
SETPOINT® CMS software can also operate independently of any OSIsoft® visualization tools if desired, providing full functionality for navigating to points of interest and displaying trend information, alarms, and vibration waveforms, allowing powerful analysis capabilities.
